True Endurance Sports Bras Do Exist

After my professional fit by the Team at She Science I discovered the Anita Active Dynamix Star X-back and although I have been tempted and tried other sports bras – this one remains my favourite.

0658_51562Before finding the Dynamix I always got nasty chafing across my back and under my breasts after a triathlon or Ironman event.

Given you start in the water then head on a ride and a run I had thought chafing was just inevitable.

After racing with the Dynamix for the first time I didn’t chafe.

It is awesome. It’s a true endurance sports bra! I also use it for my F45 Training and even on the h ottest Melbourne days whilst training in a stuffy shed I can rely on the Dynamix.

I find it really easy to get into and out of – which is a plus when you have any type of arthritic condition and especially when your body is swollen and sweaty from exercise.

$_1It is also one of the few sports bras that give your breasts shape as well as support! If you are a person that likes to have a flat tight chest whilst exercising then this may not be the bra for you but if this is not a concern then I recommend it.

This shape also allows you to wear it as an everyday bra if you are trying to avoid washing multiple items or packing another bra for your evening workout.

The straps are easily adjustable from the front!

The colours are a combination of subtle and funky! I have both a Peacock and Black one which I find blends well with my tri suit and gym gear.dyn black back

The fabric is soft and breathable and really durable. I have had my bra for over a year now and it still looks like brand new and I would wash it at least three times a week. I also find that this style of fabric allows for quick drying.

The other great thing about this bra is it doesn’t matter if you are a 16D or 12C (available A-G, 10-18) this bra looks great and you are completely supported, giving you the confidence to achieve whatever it is you set out to achieve!

All The Comfort, Style and Support a Girl Wants

The first thing you look for in a sports bra, like any other piece of clothing, is comfort. And, the Brooks Rebound Racer provides just that, plus style and support – all things a girl could want out of a bra.

_S1_2762Around six months prior to taking on my She Science ambassador role, I had already purchased a Rebound Racer after being fitted by Ange. I wore it almost every day. Since then, I have adopted three more of the same, just in different colours.

What could possibly be so great about this model that I just keep going back for more? Well, there are several features on the Rebound Racer that, as a teen, I love.

Firstly: the adjustable shoulder straps. The straps have small tabs of velcro neatly tucked away underneath enabling you to, at any point, change your mind and loosen or tighten them to your liking.

350037_690_d1_ZM_clipped_rev_1350037_690_d2_ZM_clipped_rev_1Then there is the adjustable back clip with three different tightness options. This allows for a longer period of use as the fabric may stretch (although, I’ve had my oldest one for over a year and I have yet to feel the need to tighten the clasp). The back clip allows you to be supported and the bra to sit firm around your chest, but without feeling like you are trying really hard to breath during a workout or whilst running errands.

Another well thought out feature of the sports bra is the two layers of fabric. The first layer is to ensure you don’t have any uncomfortable situations that some women may encounter when it becomes cold, with the second thicker layer, which is almost like a bandage, providing the tightness or support you relate to by feeling held in.

And fourth but certainly not final: the colour range. Wearing my Rebound Racer bras every day, I feel like I need some variation in colour. With the choice I have (green, blue, purple and pink), I can turn on my inner fashionista and mix and match with my ”outfit” (9/10 times it is Lycra to go out for a ride).

As I mentioned before I am an active teen. I ride bikes, go to school and work in a bike shop. Running from place to place, I need something that will keep me feeling supported and can continue to do so in the various activities I complete on a daily basis. At 16, I have well and truly stepped off the puberty train and developed into a young women. I wear a size 10D and, for my age, I would classify myself as small breasted. But even being a small 16 year old, I still need adequate support to feel comfortable with what I do each day. The Brooks Rebound Racer holds me in just right and enables me to run, jump, ride over logs and do whatever else I desire without fretting about discomfort or lack of support.

A Sports Bra That Has Everything You Want For Sport

Comfort, support, feeling good! Three things you want in a bra when playing sport!

I originally noticed how unsupportive the bra I was wearing was, when on one of my training runs I caught my reflection in a shop window as I ran past. I was horrified! It just so happened that one of my run routes was past the She Science store. Needless to say, seeing that ”bounce” was more than enough motivation for me to get a specialised sports bra fitting.

Wotto Collingwood V Adelaide (003)My in-store experience at She Science was extremely pleasant. I was met with a friendly face and helpful service. Not only was I fitted, I was able to wear test the bra on the treadmill to put it through its paces!

I was fitted for the Brooks* Juno*. From the moment I put this bra on I loved it! In fact, I loved it so much I had to go back and purchase two more.

The Juno is wire free and has smooth seams which means no chaffing and a super comfortable fit. Its high coverage and racer back configuration makes it a supportive, firm fit which really reduces the bounce.

The front adjusting straps is a practical addition as straps can be tightened while wearing the bra. One of my team mates has this bra and she has found it to be convenient whilst still breastfeeding her youngest.

I have found the thin foam moulded cups an added bonus for AFL, especially on a cold night at footy training when taking a chest mark!

I used to dread putting my old sports bras on, as I knew I would end up with wire digging in, indent marks from my straps and the bra not actually doing its job.Wotto Devils 2017 (003)

I am so glad I found the Juno as it’s the most comfortable sports bra I have ever worn. Do yourself a favour, as they say ”look good, feel good, play good”!


(*The Brooks Juno was previously under the Moving Comfort brand. Lou was fitted into the *Relaunched 2017 version of the Juno. This bra was updated and re-released in March this year. It is now easier to get on, has moisture wicking moulding in the cup and the fasteners have been updated.)

Thoracic Pain & Large Breasts : How to manage the discomfort


The thoracic spine is the section of spine between your cervical spine (neck) and lumbar spine (lower back). Each vertebrae of the thoracic spine has a rib connected on either side and the upper ribs connect to the sternum at the front of your body.

blog pic x

Due to the attachment of the rib cage to the thoracic spine there is limited movement through the upper back region. Consequently we can often get stiff and sore in the upper back. Sometimes stiffness in the thoracic spine and in the joints between the thoracic vertebrae and ribs can refer pain to other areas such as your sides, front of torso and arms.

Some factors can increase the risk of getting stiffness and/or pain in the upper back.

Examples include:

  • Poor standing posture
  • Poor sitting posture
  • Lots of time spent sitting
  • Engaging in lots of anterior focused activities and exercises
  • Having a large bust

The weight of a large bust puts increased force on the chest wall and can, amongst other things:

  • Tighten the pectoreal muscles
  • Pull the shoulders forward (which can also lead to various shoulder injuries)
  • Round the top of the thoracic spine (kyphosis)

Some ways to prevent and treat pain and/or stiffness in the upper back:

  • Massage of the chest and shoulders
  • Physiotherapy (which may include mobilisation of the thoracic spine)
  • Spikey ball/tennis ball/cricket ball self-release of pec muscles blog pic jblog pic k
  • Stretches- focused on opening the chest and loosening the thoracic spine
  • Upper back strengthening exercises

  • Improving posture
  • Using a lumbar roll for support when sitting
  • Decreasing time spent sitting or interspersing sitting with regular standing/walking/stretching
  • Modifying activities to decrease load on front of body
  • Getting properly fitted for a good-quality brablog pic u
  • Wearing a good quality, fitted sports bra for exercise

Understanding Bra Fitting and Bra Features to improve your riding

Anecdotally we understand that breasts and horse-riding haven’t always paired well together, but it wasn’t until recently that we truly understood the nature of this barrier to participation.  A study that was conducted on over 1300 female horse riders demonstrated 40% of participants experience breast pain in the saddle, with 21% reporting that is affected their riding. The conclusion was made that education regarding bra fitting and breast support was required in order to improve the comfort and performance of female riders.

The most important thing to get right when you are purchasing a bra is the fit. You could be in the most expensive bra with the greatest online reviews but if the bra doesn’t fit you perfectly it has no chance of functioning well.

Here are my tips to buying your best Sports Bra for horse riding:

  1. Know where the support comes from.

It’s actually the band that runs around the ribcage that is responsible for stabilising breast tissue and decreasing breast displacement (bounce!). If this band is too loose then the band will ride up and down your back and the front will follow in a see-saw effect. This leads to out of control breast displacement during activity. This is the component of most bra fittings that women often get wrong, and it is the most important part to get right. Knowing that this band needs to fit firmly in order for it to sit securely and stay in place will put you in good stead when it comes to finding your best bra.

  1. Coverage is key

The breast moves in three directions when we are riding. It moves in and out, side to side and up and down. The up and down movement is the most excessive movement. This vertical pattern of movement must be controlled in order to reduce your overall breast displacement when riding. Along with getting the right bra fit, coverage is the next most important feature to look at to control this movement. A bra that exposes cleavage will often provide an escape route for soft breast tissue during activity.

  1. Shoulder straps and posture for horse riding

The shoulder straps are important, we’d be in trouble without them, but they are often relied on too much. The shoulder straps are there to add stability, not to take the weight of the breast. A mistake often made which significantly impacts ones riding posture is pulling the shoulder straps to tightly which causes us to roll our shoulders and hunch forward, making it impossible to sit tall in the saddle and ride with the correct hand position. This over-tightening of straps often coincides with the ribcage band being too loose, and the wearer then feeling the need to tighten the straps to compensate.

  1. Shape, Style and How your Jacket sits

I can certainly tell you that shape is subjective. Some people want a flattened look under their jacket and others prefer a more well defined and shapely look. I find that in many cases this will depend also on the fit of one’s jacket.

To achieve a flattened look which could work best under jackets that possibly fit too tightly, then a bra that compresses the breast tissue down will work best. These are typically non underwire bras, and will result in more of a ‘uni-boob’ look.  Some popular options for this are the D+ Classic, Enell Sport or Jubralee.

For those looking for a more shapely look that still offers great support then a bra with underwire and a moulded cup will be most effective. This style will leave the wearer with a more defined and lifted ‘two boob’ look. Great examples of this are the Ultimate Performance, Panache Sport and Epic Sports Bra.

First Time Fit Top Five

Do you remember your first bra fitting? For most of us it was an awkward, embarrassing 10 minutes of our life in front of a total stranger. For others our first bra might have arrived wrapped in a plastic bag and been sat subtly on the end of our bed!

They call it puberty blues for a reason!

But it doesn’t have to be that awkward.

A sports bra is a great option for a first bra for developing girls and often it’s during their sporting or school physical education activities that students first start to feel like they need a bra.

Getting fitted for a sports bra rather than for an everyday bra can help eliminate some of the angst from a situation. This is because you’re purchasing a technical sports product for a noticeable need that will make them focus on feeling more comfortable rather than being focussed on being uncomfortable in some new clothing contraption!

But here are our Top Five Reasons a Sports Bra is a great first time fitting option:

  1. Comfort: They are more likely to be a crop/compression style of product. This can, in some cases, assist not only to support but to minimise the appearance of breasts and provide coverage that feels similar to a bathing suit.


  1. Adjustable: There is some great product on the market which will include the straps being adjustable at the front which can allow for breast tissue growth, while still being as supportive as possible.


  1. Wire Free: There are often very supportive options that do not have underwire. Underwire is in Sports Bras and everyday bras simply to enhance shape – and there is nothing wrong with wearing it. But for first time bra wearers they can often take some getting used to. Starting in a bra without an underwire can be a great first step.


  1. Adaptable: They fit with a student’s lifestyle. Often around the age of a first bra young people are sitting at their desk one minute and running around the next. Sports Bras can be comfortable enough to wear all day, whilst providing support when it’s demanded.


  1. Fashion: They come in a great range of colours, and let’s face it, that matters!


Most importantly a well-fitting and comfortable bra – whether everyday or Sports – can have a big impact on confidence. Starting out with the right fit and right knowledge can change what can be an awkward experience into an empowering one.


Bra Banding Might Fix Your Chafing Woes

It’s all about the banding when it comes to Sports Bras – but even more so for Sports Bras for distance runners.

Almost every runner has experience dreaded chafing somewhere at some point – ooh and the nasty sting in the shower post run!

But avoiding chafing is usually down to a few simple steps.

  1. Make sure your Sports Bra banding is firm.

You don’t want your bra to be rib-crushingly-too-tight-to-breath firm but you do want it firm enough that the band cannot move.

Having a firm band around the rib cage is the number one rule for getting a Sports Bra or any bra fit right. If the band is firm the majority of support will come from the band and it will apply less pressure to the straps on the shoulders. The bra will be more comfortable and more effective at holding breast tissue in place.

If the band is too loose you immediately lose support for breast tissue, place greater pressure on the straps AND increase your risk of chafing – because the band will move around the rib cage. This is especially true of distance runners as they deplete fluids and grams to kilograms of physical weight as they run.

  1. Make sure the Cup is snug.

For all the same reasons as above – if there is any room in the cup you lose support and invite chafing. You want it tight – compressive – but not so much that breast tissue is spilling out the top or that you feel crushed.

  1. Make sure the bra doesn’t sit too high.

As Sports Bras are often ‘’crop’’ style another common chafe point is if the bra sits too high and digs into the tissue above the breasts and slightly in from the arm pits. This is a potential friction point due to arm movement during running. As runners seek higher coverage from a Sports Bra to close vertical escape routes for breast tissue – which we love – sometimes they can sit too high and cause issues.

  1. Wear a breathable, moisture/sweat wicking material.

It might sound simple but the wrong fabric close to the skin can increase the risk of chafing. Cotton based materials for example will become saturated with sweat and lose most of their breathability.

  1. Arm yourself with an anti-chafe product

Sometimes everything you try will not be good enough. Be sure you are well hydrated and arm yourself with an anti-chafe product like Body Glide. It needs to be something that is water based and NOT petroleum based. And if you already have chafing protect it from getting worse with a film dressing.


There are some schools of thought that you shouldn’t wear underwire for distance running. In fact this is an entirely individual decision. If a wire is sitting well in the right place and on the right person some runners will find they prefer this as it will assist to encapsulate the breast tissue reducing sweat pooling between the breasts. Others will find the wire will not sit correctly on their sternum and this can cause irritation as they progress into their run and deplete in fluids. Unfortunately, as our bodies have so many variables, this is one thing that can only be determined when tested on the track.

Getting your Sports Bra professionally fitted can help to ensure you’ve ticked as many of the right boxes as you can before you head out to hit the pavement.


Breast Feeding + Exercise

By Libby Nuttall


There are so many questions running through your mind as a new mum, many of those about breastfeeding. For something so natural, it can actually be pretty hard to get the hang of! Exercise is not only safe, but recommended while breastfeeding. Studies show exercise does not have any long term affect on milk supply or nutrient content.

The benefits of exercise to a breastfeeding mother include enhanced mental health, improved fitness and more energy to cope with the demands of a baby, so now is the time to get active!

Many mums want to get back into their exercise soon after baby has been born, but are nervous about the process. Will my supply be affected? What if I start leaking? How can I tame my “ladies”? It’s all about making it work for you. Here’s my top tips for getting back into it.


Don’t rush back into high intensity exercise, allow your body to ease back into everything. Some women do find that increasing the intensity too quickly can affect their breastmilk supply, while others say it has no impact whatsoever.

You need to discover what works for you, but easing into exercise is advisable for everyone, even if you exercised right through your pregnancy. If you find noticeable changes in your milk or baby when introducing exercise, cut back and return gradually.


As a new mum, you may be sleep deprived and lethargic. You are also using more energy each day just by breastfeeding. Don’t forget, your supply can be affected by your lethargy, so don’t push it. It’s crucial that you are providing your body with the nourishment it needs, that is, good quality food, sleep and water, so you have the energy to exercise as well as produce milk.

In the early months, I find two to three days of exercise followed by a rest day is a good way to maintain and refill those energy stores.


Invest in a really supportive bra. Whether it be a breastfeeding bra or not, it needs to support your breasts so you can run with ease. Many women say their biggest challenge to overcome when it comes to exercise after baby is figuring out how to manage their breasts, so it’s invaluable to invest well and most of all, make sure it is correctly fitted.

One of my ‘breast feeding appropriate’ facvourites, the Juno!


There is evidence to suggest that lactic acid can build up in the milk supply during high intensity exercise. Once again, this can be different for all women, so just monitor your baby’s response when feeding. If she doesn’t mind, then continue. If you find bub struggles to feed after a workout, avoid feeding for 90 minutes, when your milk should return to normal.

And remember to change out of your sweaty clothes straight after a workout to avoid infection of the milk ducts.


Try to feed your baby before you do exercise. This will not only mean your baby isn’t subjected to a sweaty, salty nipple, but will mean you’re not as full while you’re working out. It can also alleviate any concerns about lactic acid build up.

Before you leave for the run, insert fresh nursing pads into your bra to prevent a mid-run leak!

Moving Comfort Juno for new Mum’s

By Libby Nuttal, founder of Miracle Months


After the birth of my first son in 2013, I couldn’t wait to get back into training and was eager to pound the pavement. But alas! Those lovely little B cup beauties had grown to the size of a grapefruit!

Layered up with a random variety of sports crops and feeding bras, I began my journey back to fitness; sometimes not-so-delicately pulling them up to feed my son on my run! Not only was I uncomfortable and unsupported, I felt like I couldn’t do the sorts of training I wanted to.

Enter the Moving Comfort Juno.

Breast feeding Sports BraSecond time around I would make no such mistakes. The Juno has the high coverage and support needed for high intensity exercise as well as running, but has the added functionality and ease of feeding on the go.

Despite feeling like you’re wrestling an alligator to get it on, once over your head it feels like a suit of armour, giving you the confidence to run, jump, ride your way to fitness. There’s no way those bad boys will stop you now!

Rather than a clip mechanism to help feed, the straps are adjustable at the front, making it super easy to feed out in public, no alligator-wrestling required. The front adjusting straps also mean you can pull them a little tighter when you’re more empty after a feed, so you’re always fully supported no matter what size.

Why would you need a bra you can feed in? I often take my sons on my walks, runs or workouts in the park, when a crying baby means a quick pit-stop. Or sometimes my workouts go a little longer than expected and I come back to a hungry bub who wants a feed then and there.

As mums we take the chance to workout whenever and wherever we can. Gone are the days of hitting the gym whenever we please or dashing out for a run anytime of the day. So it’s good to know there is a bra, in a range of fabulous colours, that can support me whenever I can squeeze in my workouts.

I recommend visiting She Science to be properly fitted for the Juno, you need just the right fit to give the ladies the support they need 😉

Bra shopping: A guide to only ever having good bra shopping experiences

CBAGOT_SheScience_Web_ 59One of the best (and most frequent) compliments we receive in store is a simple ‘that was the easiest bra fitting experience I’ve ever had’.

While it’s great to hear that our customers are having their best bra fittings with us, it’s still a frustration that the industry standard in bra fitting is so low.

So I’ve put together a list of ways to ensure you don’t ever leave a bra fitting upset, confused, empty handed or worse feeling bad about yourself.

1. Choose a specialist store

We know in life that it’s impossible to be the best at everything. Retailers are sadly not exempt from this rule. Unfortunately we see many trying to be the jack of all styles and end up as the master of none. Find a store that specialises in your bra size range or style required eg Sports, Swimwear or D cup+.

2. Call ahead and discuss your requirements

This gives you the opportunity to discuss your exact needs with the bra fitter so you can determine whether their store is the right match for you. It also allows the bra fitter to manage your expectations with how many options they may have for you, how long a fitting will take, how to avoid their busy periods, or if they have any current specials on that could suit you.

3. Leave yourself enough time to be fitted

Bra fitting can take time, particularly if there are a wide variety of options available to you. If you’re in a hurry, your bra fitter will be forced to rush you through things and you could miss either the educational benefits of a fitting, or a great style you didn’t have time to try.

4. Ignore the size on the tag

Much easier said than done, I know! Both a tape measurement and the size written on the tag are merely guides. They can vary between brands, and even styles within a brand. 8 out of every 10 fittings in store have us changing a women’s bra size which we understand can be emotionally challenging. Remember, being in a bra that fits properly will flatter you. So being open to a possible shift in band or cup size could result in a much better outcome.

5. Challenge yourself with different styles

Women will naturally gravitate to what they know or have experienced, but that isn’t always best. There is a whole world of options out there, so try not to rule out styles before you’ve tried them. Expert bra fitters not only have plenty of experience in fitting women, they also know the product they stock very well so it pays to follow their lead on what they feel could suit you. After all there’s no harm in trying.

A well-practiced bra fitter will have tons of tips for you on bra fitting. If they are not educating you as they go, ask them to talk you through some tips that could be relevant to you. Or even better, get them to assess the fit of the bra that you have been wearing. Chances are you’ll learn something that could assist you with the drawer of bras you have at home.
